Love Birds? Love TED Talks? You won’t want to pass up this TED Talk For the Love of Birds!

From the glorious crested guinea fowl to the adulterous African jacana to vultures that can pick a zebra carcass clean in 30 minutes, Washington Wachira wants us all to get to know the marvelous species of birds that share the planet with us. If you’re not already a fan of earth’s feather makers — or concerned about their conservation — you will be after you watch this delightful talk.

Washington Wachira is a birder and ecologist who started the Youth Conservation Awareness Programme to nurture young environmental enthusiasts in Kenya.
